Over three days Lakeside will present a programme of innovative and exciting performances showcasing a variety of art forms by some of the most daring and cutting edge artists working in the UK today. There are three different programmes running each night offering a selection of different artists and art forms. EVERY ACTION Four strangers meet before twenty-five metres of rope looped over two pulleys. As they explore this elevated set of scales they discover a world where everything you do will affect someone, somewhere. OUT OF SIGHT An expansive landscape, barren and white. The dancer’s relative smallness and fragility are accentuated, yet her most subtle shifts of tension, of intention are highlighted and allowed to resonate and fill the space. THE EXTRA Having lost her partner, a woman feels herself to be an ‘extra’ in every way. The Extra is dance theatre that questions, entertains and finds the funny side of sadness. 'Firsts' is supported by the Helen Hamlyn Trust in memory of Paul Hamlyn. Please note the £10 for all three evenings offer can only be booked by calling the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
